The bad news is that the new stitches in my back has led to our surgeon, Dr. Robert Lee, limiting my arm movements for the next two weeks.
The really bad news, at least for the people at G.F. Strong and the general public around King Ed and Laurel in Vancouver, is that they've given me a power wheelchair.
Oh. Mercy. Think of the havoc I can cause with a motor and wheels?
I'm feeling strong and confident, so I think I'll be back doing a lot of walking through the next couple of weeks, but the power chair does have a certain video game appeal to it, since it's controlled by a joystick.
As for the wound, it's a little antsy at times, but it's not too surprising, considering the skin there has been through 20 radiation sessions to battle back my Solitary Plasmacytoma tumour and the seven surgeries. It does seem to be getting more under control after Dr. Lee's on-the-fly stitch session on Saturday.
